The NYPD is looking for a creep who flashed a woman on a subway in Manhattan and then stabbed a man who confronted him about it.

According to police, at 2:10 p.m. on July 12, a 40-year-old woman was riding a northbound 3 train near the 135th Street subway station in Harlem when an unknown man exposed his private parts while on the train. Both the victim and the suspect left the train at the station, and the victim told her 37-year-old male friend about the incident.

The victim’s friend went to confront the suspect, leading to a physical altercation between the two. The suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the man twice in the head and slashed his arm before fleeing the station in an unknown direction.

The victim walked himself to NYC Health & Hospitals/Harlem to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

On July 28, the NYPD released photos and video of the suspect taken from the train station:


Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
